"Innocent - According to Pilate"

“Innocent - According to Pilate”

Blessings Folk!

Today’s reading:

Luke 23:13-16

Pilate revealed to the chief priests, rulers and people that they were fools as to their accusation of Jesus.

They had called Him an instigator of rebellion.

Both Pilate and Herod found Him innocent of the charges.

The Jews were furious.

Pilate agreed to punish Jesus.
For what?
For the false accusations?
For appeasement of the Jews.

Pilate would then release Jesus.

At least, that was Pilate’s suggested solution…

Jesus...suffered for us...
